mikaka75's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" My favorite at the moment"

Ernie Ball Coated Titanium RPS Electric Slinky
I tried a sling ropes (Blue steel, D'Addario, Elixir, DR, Dunlop, Gibson, even Washburn only found in the USA).
I play more or less everything (Rock, Metal, Jazz, funk, reggae, fusion).

Longevity level, a game lasts me almost 3 months and I play 2h/day minimum.

To the sounds: the most beautiful stamp I know everything related to the clean sounds. I can draw Jazz sounds really, really cool, for example.

DO they shout but are a little below the Cobalt, which have a more edgy and slamming her.

Regarding the affected are those who give me the best bounce and the best sensations.
They are also somewhat "harder" than the standard, in particular as regards the bends.

I see a lot of negative reviews about them and I find it hard to understand why these strings are as effective.
I admit that the price is a little Cheros: 18 balls, it hurts onion (although this is not worse than the Elixir, and to my taste, they sound better).

It's been a while since I switch from one brand to another but now I've found what suits me.

Ernie Ball Coated Titanium RPS Electric Slinky
How long have you use it?
Six months they are on my guitar, and not a single mark oxidation

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
The D'Addario original Dunlop and Dean Markley

What is the particular feature you like best and least?
Most: currently no oxidation due to 5-6 hours per week. A ringing sound that I love.
Least: the price!

How would you rate the quality / price?
Listed in time, but paying 2.5x the price of a normal game it hurts instantly. So to see if the strings can really last.

With experience, you do again this choice?
Yes, I have to take for my new guitar. Hoping that the result will be as good.

Ernie Ball Coated Titanium RPS Electric Slinky
Hello to everyone. As the reviews on this site I have been and are still often useful to me, I post my turn.

- For how long have you been using it?

I used 2 sets of strings coated with 10-52 I ordered a month ago on Thomann. As I break a lot, I was looking into the technology to cure my portfolio. Selling in magazines and the Internet "takes 5-7 times longer!"

- Did you try many other models before getting this one?

I am at Ernie Ball since I started, attracted by the great guitarists that use them. I've never had to complain. I played on the 11-54, 11-48 and now I realize that it's 10-52 for me. It is a quality brand and very reliable.

- What thing do you like most/least about it?

So I think not being alone in my case, in light of advice from other sites on these strings (or the purchase of a comment woodbrass ...). The 3 / 4 people who will buy these strings is for increased durability. And that's what I like least. The first set broke after one week, about 10 hours of play, but I made the mistake to put another product on it to keep ... Both have responded, the strings began to hang a lot, and it did not surprise me that it breaks.
Either. We deliver another. It broke today, almost two weeks after installation. This time, 100% natural, just over 20 hours of play by cleaning with a dry cloth after the game, and not arriving with hands full of grease ... To make a nod to mythbusters, increased longevity: CAN!
However, I must concede that the benefit of coated strings, it's really touching that they provide. After 20h (+ / - 2h huh) they have almost lost none of their feeling of departure. It does not have that feeling of "grip" that you can have on ropes dirty after a while. I have not had time to look at corrosion, but it seemed to hold.

- What is your opinion about the value for the price?

Very sincerely wrong. I do not understand why these chords are also expensive with a micro-layer top and a strengthening of 3 strings fart anyway. It still must be said, a big publicity stunt, double the price for 3 drops of product is not great for the taxpayer.

- Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?

NO, I do not do it again this election. I think that these strings have an interest, and it is not for me. I will return to the classic 10-52, uncoated, and I'll apply the product myself (stringcleaner formula65 Dunlop, a love of chemical solution: D) like that I feel and not in the 5 € Also, for the same duration. A 4 € the small bottle (all my prices are from Thomann) jdois be about half of the product (and again ...), using it after heavy play sessions where the strings have assumed the impurity + .
However. The following is advice to check, but I think a casual player or just a very gentle with these strings might be interested in these strings, if they keep this feel real (and brilliant, just as it should) in the length, 1 1 / 2 months, 2 months. In this case the price premium is offset, because even without playing, keep the strings sound after a long delay like that, even with a product that's hard jpense.

You decide your needs! I put 6 because the stunt I still lost 2 sets of strings "normal" for half price, + shipping Thomann.
